Once you’ve learned basic blacksmithing skills, the possibilities are endless. Intermediate blacksmithing classes are mostly project-focused, with the stated goal of the class being to make a particular item. However, my teaching focus is always on process–on building transferable skills that you can use to create….almost anything.
These classes are NOT suitable for those who have never hammered hot metal before. If you’re brand new to the craft please start with one of my Beginning Blacksmithing Classes.
Intermediate Blacksmithing Classes offer a wide variety of projects with which to grow your blacksmithing skills and confidence. Classes are limited to three (3) students, so you always get individual attention.
Intermediate classes are $250 per student, and run from 9 am to 4 pm (or till we’re done) with an hour lunch break. Maximum 3 students per class.
Making Punches and Chisels
Next Date TBD (please inquire if interested)
One of the most unique and useful aspects of blacksmithing is that you can make your own tools. In this class you’ll learn the vital basics of making punches and chisels–choosing the right stock, shaping it to suit your needs, and achieving the right hardness for utility, safety, and lasting service.
